Yea I figured.

my DD requirements are: hella cheap, parts galore, reliable.

BMW for a toy/weekend/track car is fine with me but is herra expensive to DD.......well actually its not........its just herra expensive because I was a dumb.

I'd either have this entire year of school paid for or be fully STX prepped.


probably the latter

cheap, light, 7.5" wide. comes in other colors but bronze is sex.
um, thats a 15x7.5 4-100
I need a 17x7.5 4-108
The style and ultra light weight are definitely sex tho.
I already have bronze rims, but was looking for a dark smoked titanium/gunmetal finsh for the new ones =D

I suppose what ever I get for a DD doesn't need to be the fastest thing on the planet.. but I want to at least be fun. The E30 was by no means quick but I loved toying around in it. May even consider another one just not the ix for obvious reasons. AWD for me is still preferred but i'll make due with w/e

What do you think? thoughts/feedback?


I want to go with a more limey color like this:


but I couldn't find the right angle to photochop easily.

I'd also want to do this graphic on the back corner and then opposite front corner in the same color lime green (I just dont have the skills to shop it on.


Appreciate your feedback!
